Celebrate holiday

July & August are school summer break, so many people goes on holiday during this period. I can't wait for my holiday trip, that's why I made this card.
The sentiment says: 'may all your days be full of sunshine'.
It's made according to the sketch of Stamps & Fun:
The freebie can be found HERE. There are more adorable ones, so I recommend this site!
I was wondering what can I do to improve coloring of the stamps. As I mentioned before, copics style markers are horrible expensive here, so I probably won't be able to afford them soon. I was very upset until watercolours caught my eye... Hmmmm... worth to try & one set costed me 1/3 price of one marker (sic!). I have been practising the whole week, and... ta daaaaa... here is my first card with stamp coloured with watercolours!
I have to admit it doesn't look so bad. I still have problem colouring hair (especially when I see card like THIS - Coops is my Master of hair colouring!), but it's far far better than colouring with school markers.
And this is my 'colouring station'... LOL
I really love this tiny ship - unfortunately it's the last one I have. I also made the rosettes from cupcake's paper moulds and sew them together with a button.
This blue paper with birds I've found lately in my stash as never used before. I remember I bought it last year for some school purpose, but never used it.
